As if it wasn’t enough to say goodbye to one of our Marvel favorites in Avengers: Endgame, it turns out Iron Man’s death could have been seriously gross too.
In a new interview with Insider, the movie’s VFX supervisor Matt Aitken has revealed that their initial design concepts involved one of Tony Stark’s eyeballs popping out of his face.
“We gave the filmmakers a full range [of looks] to choose from and one of those was where the energy from the stones had acted right up into his face and popped one of his eyeballs out and it was hanging out on his cheek,” he said.
“They didn’t go for that one,” Aitken added. And we’re certainly glad they didn’t.

In the same interview, VFX producer Jen Underdahl explained that they presented a whole range of looks to the movie’s bosses – ranging from the terrifying to something with a “light touch”. “With any development item, you want to be able to give the filmmakers a full gamut, from sort of a light touch all the way to horror, and this will never be in it,” she said.
“But by doing that exercise and by letting them see sort of every stage, they can kind of pinpoint and circle the drain on where they think the look is going to settle.”
She went on: “We did go several rounds on that guy from grisly to not so grisly to more light of a touch, back to, ‘OK this is the spot where we think the audience is not going to get too freaked out, but also really understand that Tony has reached the point of no return’.”
